GUEST,sorfingers Why are Martin Guitars so expensive? (284* d) RE: Why are Martin Guitars so expensive? 10 Oct 05


Nope theres absolutely no point in comparing brands!

I have played on Taylors that were superb but the very next month others that were rubbish. The other day I got hold of a Larivee that was on sale for 1019 bucks and it was a box to die for, superb and no equal in a place full of high dollar boxes.

Once had a used rosewood Fender that almost played itself. There's no such a thing as buying unseen untried 'WOODEN' guitars! You have to try first and be satisfied with what you get.

We now have a Martin DM - because we liked it so much when we tried it, and we did not know at the time it was a Martin! Only a couple of years in use it is now in the Guitar hopital for wear on the fretboard and frets, also needs some other adjustments. I wouldn't trade it for anything even another Martin, again, because I like it soooo much.
